Default Great Knot site

Here's a good site for knots from one of our members. I'll make it a sticky for all to use.

Anybody ever use the knot tying tools or have any recomendations on them, was thinking of buying one for when it is very cold out. Here is one but there are several others if you do a google search.

Default Need some help with knot selection.

My problem is with selecting the right knot in the best situation. I'm trying to get my round lead-head curly tail/grub style Jigs to stay horizontal for a vertical presentation. Is a palomar knot, trilene, or Uni-knot best here? I may be wrong on these guesses all together. I just want to be right when its spring crappie time.

I love that site - I have a few know tying books as well (never know when I need to brush up on an seldom used knot)

What is your "go-to" knot?

For me - uni-knot.

Default Trilene knot

I like the double loop. To many times the uni will break and leave you with the upper part of the knot.

awsome site and very informative!


I use a combination of the trilene knot and the improved clinch, basicly i do the trilene then take it a step further and use the last technic of (sliding the line through the loop) the improved clinch, kinda like an added insurance, since using this type of knot with my own twist i have minimized my lost lures by a great percentage.

I just compiled a list of YouTube clips that illustrate and explain several different knots.

This is my first post, although I was turned onto this sight this past summer and have looked at it almost every day. That was a great, easy to follow layout of how to tie proper knots. I have often wondered how to do different knots to keep the line from "cutting itself" as my dad would say. Thanks!

The bowline is best for your tying up at the dock question. If you google it, I'm sure you'll learn how to use it pretty quick.
